Cannot move part small amount in Z direction


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cannot move part small amount in Z direction

Hi there,


I have two meshes that I want to print as one part. I know that I can merge meshes outside of Cura, but I wanted to try the options in Cura.


I can center both meshes, but would need to move one of them up by 10 mm. When I try that in the move dialogue, Cura puts the part back on the build plate and reverts the field to 0. Negative values and values above 25 mm are accepted. Is there an option that snaps the parts to the build plate? If so, what's the name so that I can change the value? Thank you very much for your help!
